Chocolate Chip-Cinnamon Biscotti

Recipe from


Ingredients

1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon instant coffee or espresso granules
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 cup semisweet chocolate mini-morsels
2 (2-ounce) squares vanilla candy coating, melted

Preparation

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended.

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to butter mixture, stirring until blended. Fold in nuts and chocolate morsels.

Divide dough in half, and shape each dough portion into a 10- x 2-inch log on a lightly greased baking sheet.

Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until firm. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Cut each log diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices with a serrated knife using a gentle sawing motion, and place slices on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake slices at 350° for 10 minutes; turn cookies over, and bake 10 additional minutes. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Dip 1 side of each cookie into candy coating; chill until set.
